chemguide: CIE A level chemistry support Cambridge University Press (CUP) have just published (January 2011) a brand new book covering the whole of the CIE A level chemistry course, including the Applications section. The book includes a useful CD-ROM which has answers to all the end-of-chapter questions amongst other things. The CD-ROM is usable by both PCs and Macs. The book has been written by a completely different set of authors from the old book and the Applications Support Booklet - and it shows! The new book is written in an extremely student-friendly way. That's not to say that there won't be mistakes in the book, and perhaps odd bits missed out (see below). I have so far only read parts of the book, but I have no hesitation in recommending it. You can find out more about it by following the Amazon links below.

Unicycling Inspires Chemist, More And Better Chocolate | June 17, 2013 Issue - Vol. 91 Issue 24 [+]Enlarge Champ: Max Schulze, unicycler and chemist. Credit: Minesh Bacrania It was because of a Father’s Day gift that 21-year-old Max Schulze, a rising senior honors student in chemistry at Colorado School of Mines, became a world champion unicyclist. Eight years ago, Max and his older brother bought their dad a unicycle for the holiday, which was observed this year on Sunday, June 16, in the U.S. and many other countries. As it turned out, Schulze’s father didn’t really get the hang of riding the one-wheeled contraption. Schulze didn’t start out with the aim of being a world champion. Soon, he was taking part in local competitions by hopping curbs, riding along sloped handrails, and jumping over obstacles. By his senior year in high school, Schulze, then 18 years old, went to the 2010 Unicycle World Championships & Convention in New Zealand (Unicon) and placed first in the high-jump and trial events. So, the Newscripts gang wondered, is there any link between unicycling and chemistry?

The Science Spot Middle School Chemistry | Download Free Science Activities, Access Chemistry Multimedia, Find Information on Workshops More Precious than Rubies Science Starters What are science starters? With the addition of a SmartBoard to my classroom three years ago, I started developing Science Starters presentations to use as class starters or warm-ups and have set up this page to share those with all of you. The starters are provided as PowerPoint 2003 files so they can be used with any interactive software (SmartBoard or Mimio) or just a projector. The starters typically take 5 minutes or less to complete and provide students with a focused activity to start class. I provide students with a Science Starters answer sheet (quarter format) that has room for nine weeks worth of answers. Also available ...
